I am back with this annoying machine, the history is is in this thread http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/XP/Q_26641268.html
Alli can get when trying to boot up is the image attached, some sort of error message. This is with trying to boot with UBCD and the Windows XP installation disk.
As MASQUERAID said in the thread, in part "If the simple drive replacement works then great but if the controller is playing up you are cetainly better off cutting your losses."
So folks can you please help me find out if this is the controller and should i throw the machine out, or what? Remember i just bought a new HD please take a look at the thread before answering thanks!
